What to Wear in Your 40s and 50s

How to dress in your 40s and 50s

The big 4-0 doesn’t mean much of anything, other than we’re a year wiser. It definitely doesn’t mean you should stop wearing the clothes you love or close up your cleavage to the world. If anything, being 40 liberates you from fashion rules. You don’t have to follow the trends (unless you want to) and you won’t have to follow any rules other than: wear what makes you feel good.

If you’re looking for some inspiration to help you define what to wear over 40, you’ve found it. Take a peek around and let us know what you think. You’ll also enjoy our fashion trends and fashion advice sections, both of which have many posts that apply to fashionistas of all ages.
